    likely, but its probably as deep under the surface as it is high so unless its small its doubtful you will have the 'gumption' to plunge a hot soldering iron tip way in there lol ... you'd be better off with a wart removing product or bloodroot salve if you can acquire some or make it yourself ..

    Warts are small, raised bumps on the surface of the skin. ... Contrary to popular belief, warts do not have "roots." They originate from the top layer of skin, the epidermis. As they grow down into the second layer of skin, the dermis, they can displace the dermis but not form roots: The underside of a wart is smooth.
